Jetting Away
by Teri Heyer

Priscilla Alexander can no longer take the stress of her job as an advertising executive in San Francisco. In addition, her soon-to-be-divorced mother has permanently moved into Priscilla's small condo. To make matters worse, Priscilla recently split from her dead-end boyfriend. So, after eating a to-die-for hot-fudge sundae at Ghirardelli Square, she decides to get away. Her destination? She'll fly to Australia and venture into the Outback, alone. As Priscilla has come to realize, sometimes escape is the only option.

WARNING: "Jetting Away" is a short story prequel to "Outback Love." It can be read as a stand-alone, but I'm sure you'll enjoy Priscilla's further adventures in my contemporary romance novel, "Outback Love." "Jetting Away" is approximately 5,680 words in length. It's a short, fun read with a touch of romance. You may feel compelled to drink coffee, eat donuts, savor hot fudge sundaes and jet away. Best of all, it's Free!!!

Rekindling Motives
by
Elaine Orr

DescriptionJolie Gentil is appraising the vacant Tillotson-Fisher house and finds the skeleton of Richard Tillotson hidden in an antique attic wardrobe. He vanished just after his sister married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a link to the Fisher family's Prohibition era business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers. The present day murder of Richard's former girlfriend, Mary Doris, tells them they're on the right track. Did the secret she kept all these years finally kill her? Between running the food pantry at Christmas time and escaping a burning building, they hope to figure out who the modern killer is before someone else gets hurt.

Engulfed
by
Kathleen M. Cosgrove

DescriptionMaggie Finn travels to South West Florida expecting to find heat, sand, and gangs of old people. What she finds are dead bodies, a kidnapping, the mob and a certain Jewish Cuban detective that she has developed a school girls crush on.

It's not long before she's engulfed in events that will either destroy her or prove to her that it's never too late to begin again and that life isn't over until it is.

This book is filled with fun and unforgettable characters and situations that never leave a dull moment from page one to epilogue.


The Desolate Garden
by
Danny Kemp

DescriptionThe Desolate Garden is the story of a secret Royal and Ancient Government Bank, established in the fourteenth century, located in London, England, near what would become Queen Anne's Gate, and a stones throw from a more recent edifice, Buckingham Palace. Since its inauguration, only one family has ruled over the Bank; the Paterson's, Earls of Harrogate, hereditary Lords of the Realm. Down through centuries the Bank's capital has grown in many surreptitious ways, but upon the election of a Socialist Government in 1945 at the end of the Second World War, the Bank's chief executive officer, Lord Maudlin Paterson, sensing the winds of change, offers the bank's services exclusively to the Secret Intelligence Services, a move that ensures the Bank will endure the forces of a Britain fast descending into grasping Socialism.

It is now the year 2003. And, Lord Elliot Paterson takes over the custodianship of the Bank and begins the task of converting the Bank's hand-written ledgers into digital form and discovers in a hidden ledger, dated 1936, a vast quantity of money erased from the accounts. He digs deeper into the mystery, and comes across some initials along with an address in Leningrad, a major port in Stalin's Soviet Union, in the margins of another ledger. Lord Elliot suspects that his grandfather, Lord Maudlin, was funding a Russia spy but stays silent until in 2012. In his waning days, he telephones his eldest son, Harry, to pass on the fears behind his suspicions.

The novel opens with Lord Elliot's murder when Lord Harry Paterson, forty, single, a dandy living on the Harrogate estate, and long recruited into the secret world after his service in the Army, is summoned to London and must ascend into his family's true inheritance.

Lord Harry meets Judith Meadows, an attractive, but otherwise a stick-figure of a woman, in the world-famous Martini bar at Duke's Hotel in London's St James's. Meadows plays him for the rake that he is before destroying his hopes of bliss when she discloses that she works for the Home Office and is the case officer assigned to unravel the mysterious death of Lord Elliot. As the story unfolds, the relationship between the two, both sexually and intellectually, ricochets back and forth like a train driven by a teenager, stuck in first gear. Lord Harry knows more than he is willing to reveal, and Meadows knows more about his family than Lord Harry does.

The Desolate Garden is especially for readers who like a story, largely rendered through dialog because it was the dialog that pulled the work off the page and onto a movie set. This political thriller resonates with charm, deft touches of satire, and romantic entanglement and where the promise of rampant sex is a turn of the page away. At 331 pages, The Desolate Garden makes a "jolly smashing" weekend read.
